The Royal Mint has unveiled new designs that will be appearing on British coins throughout 2020, each telling a monumental story that has helped to shape Britain as we know it today.

To mark 100 years since Agatha Christie published her first novel, The Mysterious Affair at Styles, the ‘Queen of Crime’ will be commemorated on a £2 coin for the first time. Having sold over two billion copies of her stories, she is one of the most successful authors in the world, and this coin will celebrate her legacy of defining the golden age of crime fiction.

Nicola Howell, Chief Commercial Officer at The Royal Mint, said: “Our 2020 Annual Set commemorates a broad range of important historical events and people that have had a huge impact in how we live our lives today. Purchasing one of these limited-edition Annual sets is the perfect way to mark special moments in the year ahead and is an ideal way to continue your UK coin collection from The Royal Mint.”

The commemorative set will be available to purchase from The Royal Mint website in a range of precious metal and base proof finishes, prices start from £30.
